Synopsis - ASHA, a 58
year old oppressed housewife from a small town in India arrives in New Delhi
under the guise of visiting her independent and strong daughter, NATASHA, 28.
However, she wants more than a vacation. Asha has come with the hope of leaving
her deeply patriarchal marriage. When Asha shares her desire to leave her 30
year old marriage, she's met with a knee jerk reaction of shock and anger from
Natasha. Shunned and gutted, Asha tries to keep her happy facade through
oppressive circumstances, which her daughter starts seeing in a new way for the
first time. Natasha slowly has a change of heart but it might be too little too
late for Asha, who might not be welcoming of the daughter's empathy anymore.
